Made from pasteurized sheep milk.

Hidden Springs Creamery is a leader in sheep milk cheeses.  Sheep milk is generally higher in fat and sweeter than cow milk.

This Manchego-style cheese is not made in the La Mancha region of Spain, but it is firm, compact and buttery like its Iberian cousin.



Wisconsin Manchego cheese

Wisconsin Manchego cheese is made by Hidden Springs Creamery, located near Westby, Wisconsin. In fact, Hidden Springs produces lovely sheep milk cheeses, and some other mixed-milk offerings. Consequently, Brenda and Dean Jensen run Hidden Springs Creamery, which started with a herd of 50 dairy sheep. Now they make eight cheeses, and milk a lot more sheep. They sell everything from Driftless, a fresh cheese similar to Chevre, to this hard, Spanish-style Manchego cheese.

“It started with a small herd of 50 dairy sheep and my husband Dean dragging me to sheep dairy co-op meetings. I thought he was crazy and I was right. Soon after we started milking, I realized our sheep’s milk was something very special and maybe we ought to be making cheese.” -Brenda Jensen
